FLOW 250 Hours, JUL 1 - 27, 2019


Complete your yoga teacher training in the original Evolation yoga studio - the first place to bring the Hot 26+2 yoga method to Western New York. Learn, grow, and practice in Buffalo - a city of art, architecture, and industry, located right next to the majestic Niagara Falls.

By the end of the 250 hour 4 week Immersion Trainings, you will be fully equipped to teach either Hot 26+2 classes or intelligently sequenced Flow (Vinyasa) classes and will be qualified for your RYT 200 Hour Registration through Yoga Alliance. 

Some remaining details of this training are still being finalized - stay tuned for updates - or send us your questions now!


Our daily practice will be at the Evolation Yoga Studio in Buffalo. Now centrally located in Buffalo’s West Side, in the Five Points neighborhood, our studio is in the newly renovated and historic 476 Rhode Island building.

Before and after class take a moment to take in the bright light and comfort of the lobby before helping yourself to the naturally lit open yoga room back on the first floor.

You will live, study, and practice alongside a small group of other likeminded aspiring yogis, creating friendships and bonds that can last a lifetime. 

"This isn’t just a company making money selling yoga, but a true family sharing love and knowledge in the purest way. I am reminded of WHY we teach yoga… to help people to connect to the highest version of themselves, to become healthy in body, mind and spirit."

-Zana O'Conell, Evolation Graduate
